I completed this work around November 20th, 1982. This song is written in the form of a ballad-lullaby. The arrangement was never fully finished by me in the recording. The arrangement was in the form of an orchestral sketch with this recording. Still, it is still beautiful enough to be released on CDbaby which I hope you will enjoy and tell me so by purchasing it from me as a digital single.
I had broken up a two year love relationship at that time, but reminisced over the love that I experienced in that relationship, after I had moved out, while finding a port in the storm of my life with my father at that time, as I worked to think out where my life was going. I was around age 26 at that time. My dad welcomed me home fortunately. I had always gotten along with him, but my mother was a nightmare at all times to deal with.
I think the words of the song pretty much speak for themselves. They are also something anyone can identify with, after the act of making love, with someone they enjoy being with. Feel free to send a copy of this song to that special someone in your life, before the relationship breaks apart. It might save your relationship with them. This is for all the afterglows out there!
AFTERGLOW OF OUR LOVE
Sleep my love and know that while you sleep I'm here
Gently holding you as I lie awake.
The moon my live is shining in our room tonight
Softly lighting your loving face.
Oh, I my love, will watch you as the night goes on
No one else ever made me feel this way,
Oh, I love you so; So much that it hurts inside
This warm and tender feeling I could never hide.
AND IN THE MORNING AS YOU FACE ANOTHER DAY
REMEMBER I AM WITH YOU TO LIGHTEN THE WEIGHT
BUT STAND TALL MY LOVE
THOUGH THIS OLD WORLD SEEMS COLD
AND YOU'LL FEEL ME IN THE AFTERGLOW OF OUR LOVE
So sleep my love, and know that while you dream I'm there
And while you hold me, I'll be fast asleep.
The moon my love will be shining until the morning light
Giving our special love just one more day. (Chorus)
